Ukraine War LIVE: Paranoid Putin fears poison plot as 'inept' troops ambushed on frontline


The UK Ministry of Defence’s latest intelligence update says Russia has “so far failed to achieve its original objectives” and has been “surprised by the scale and ferocity of the Ukrainian resistance”.

In its assessment, the UK MoD says the Kremlin has been forced to change its operational approach and is now pursuing a tactic of attrition.

It warns: “This is likely to involve the indiscriminate use of firepower resulting in increased civilian casualties, destruction of Ukrainian infrastructure, and intensify the humanitarian crisis.”

Tighter restrictions over the country’s media are also expected, the MoD says, as Vladimir Putin tries to “control the narrative” of the war – which he refers to as a “special military operation”.
